Are Electric Scooters Legal in Aurora?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

Electric scooters and other shared small mobility devices are designed to stop assisting at speeds exceeding 15.5 mph. While riding on sidewalks, the operator must limit the speed to 6 mph and exercise extreme caution around pedestrians, who have the priority. When overtaking pedestrians or when in close proximity, the riders must slow down to match pedestrian speeds. When riding on the roadway, electric scooters are only permitted if the speed limit is 30 mph or lower. If there are no bike lanes or trails and the roadway's speed limit exceeds 30 mph, then the scooter may be used on the sidewalk while adhering to the appropriate speed and yielding to pedestrians. Riders should be aware of the risks associated with operating a mobility device in various contexts.

Motors on e-scooters, or other unspecified shared mobility small devices, shall cease to provide assistance when the device reaches a speed of up to 15.5 miles per hour. If operated on the sidewalk, it shall be the rider’s responsibility to operate at the maximum speed limit of six (6) miles per hour. 
When operating on sidewalks, users are required to use extreme caution when interacting with or passing pedestrians. j. Pedestrians have the right-of-way at all times. k. When interacting with pedestrians, users are required to proceed at a pace to match pedestrian speed when unable to pass pedestrians. l. Users of any shared mobility device must take caution and be aware of any and all associated risk of danger when utilizing a mobility device in any given context. Authorized shared mobility devices may operate in the roadway if the maximum speed limit of the roadway does not exceed thirty (30) miles per hour. 2) If no bike lane or trail is available and the roadway has a speed limit greater than thirty (30) miles per hour, the device may be ridden on the sidewalk
